New Jaguar Game in the Works Called JagZombies

Do you know what you get when fans figure out how to make games for their favorite consoles? You get stuff that is unique, often quite different than what was released commercially. Take for instance JagZombies, a work in progress title for the Atari Jaguar console. This is a lightgun style game pitting you against a horde of zombies that are hellbent on ending your life. Armed with a gun, you must shoot the undead as they appear on screen or become their next meal.

Xelda: Quest for the Golden Apple Released on ZX Spectrum

What initially started out as a memory test for a game development engine developed into Xelda, a fully fledged adventure for the ZX Spectrum with just a little hint of The Legend of Zelda for good measure.

My Favorite Gaming Hidden Gems, Part Two: Dark Summit (2001, PlayStation 2)

I’ve been playing and collecting video games since the early 1980’s, and while there’s something to be said for enjoying the greats of the gaming world, there’s no better feeling for me than picking out something I’d never heard of, throwing it into my system, and being unable to tear myself away from it because it was just too damn fun. With that in mind, I thought I’d start up a series about my own personal favorite hidden gems of the gaming world to let people know about the unsung, the overlooked, the ignored, and the downright weird niche titles that had no chance of achieving the heights of a Mario, Sonic, or Zelda.

Five Classic Activision Games Missing From Call of Duty: WWII

Call of Duty is one of the greatest FPS franchises of all time. It has managed to redefine the FPS genre with amazing visuals and tight gameplay mechanics all the while still providing a venue for the time honored traditions of killing Nazi’s and zombies. Let’s be honest, nearly every game can be made better simply by adding zombies. Zombies are to video games as cowbell is to music, vampires are to YA fiction, and Nutella is to anything you want to put into your mouth. ANYTHING. Infinity Ward knows this all too well but what is a developer to do when you define the future? Well, you find a link to the past to make the future all the more intriguing.

Double Dragon

Double Dragon Receives Fan Treatment on Commodore Amiga

The original Double Dragon game on Commodore Amiga was, well I will say it, pretty much trash. It almost appears to be a i game, but it comes off as a poor port all around. Much like what fans do, someone is remaking it as close to the arcade original as they can. Does the fan remake do more justice than the one that was done by paid programmers? Do you even have to ask that question?

Visitor Center Jurassic Park Remake

My Favorite Gaming Hidden Gems, Part One: Snoopy and the Red Baron (1983, Aari 2600)

I’ve been playing and collecting video games since the early 1980’s, and while there’s something to be said for enjoying the greats of the gaming world, there’s no better feeling for me than picking out something I’d never heard of, throwing it into my system, and being unable to tear myself away from it because it was just too damn fun. With that in mind, I thought I’d start up a series about my own personal favorite hidden gems of the gaming world to let people know about the unsung, the overlooked, the ignored, and the downright weird niche titles that had no chance of achieving the heights of a Mario, Sonic, or Zelda.

Bounder Commodore 64

Bounder Coming to Mobile Platforms, Features Three Versions

Bounder, originally published by Gremlin Graphics Software Ltd in 1985, is coming to both Android and iPhone soon. For those that are not familiar with Bounder, you are controlling a tennis ball trying to navigate platforms suspended high in the air. Miss a jump and well, you die. Simple. Considering this is a classic title from the mid 1980’s it is anything but simple.

A Near Dawn

New Point and Click Adventure A Near Dawn Launched on Kickstarter

A Near Dawn is a brand-new point and click adventure that was created in a similar vein as Broken Sword and Monkey Island. Let’s look at what is interesting about this new game seeking crowdfunding support. First, the graphics are brand new, original, along with a fully voiced story to help keep you interested. Great start so far. Billed as a dark humorous psychological thriller, A Near Dawn is certainly shaping up to be an interesting indie game.
